Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I need a building and pest inspection at my property?

Building pest inspections are designed to determine the house’s condition before you commit to its sale. They assist clients with identifying any issues such as structural defects, builder faults and damage due to pest infestations.

Why do I need a building and pest inspection from a building inspector, not just real estate agents?

Qualified building inspectors can provide you with a comprehensive report on the structural quality of your build. Realtors are paid to find buyers, not conduct safety checks on the homes they list.

What equipment do your building inspectors use during a pest inspection?

We use the latest technology on our building inspections in Melbourne, such as the Termatrac T3i Radar Termite Detector, Moisture and Humidity Meter, and FLIR E5 Infrared Camera Thermal Imaging.

How long do building inspections take to complete?

A building pest inspection usually takes less than a day. While you can be present, letting the professionals do it is better. They are qualified and trained in doing these inspections, and can supply you with the information you need quickly without interference.

What are the dangers of not booking building inspections when purchasing a property?

Some dangers include enlisting financial liability for yourself unknowingly due to hidden defects, committing to faulty renovation plans and high repair costs among others. House inspections allow you to identify vulnerable areas of your home where you are undertaking financial risk. This way, you can have the vendor accountable in meeting construction industry standards by carrying out the repairs first before selling to you, or you can negotiate for a lower asking price.

Do new homes require pest inspections, or are they only necessary for older houses?

A pest inspection is one of the most important elements of your pre-purchase building inspection. Building pest inspections allow you to determine if there’s any pest issues and provide you with professional advice on pest control actions.

Do you offer a building inspection service for investment and commercial properties?

Yes, we do. Although we specialise in home inspections, we also provide building inspections for commercial and investment property buyers in Melbourne Western Suburbs. We can help you identify building defects and safety hazards before you make the financial commitment.

What are some uses of my building pest inspection reports?

You can resolve building problems as your reports identify structural faults in sub floor areas, asbestos issues, pest infestation problems and other damages, and address them accordingly.

When should I schedule pre-purchase inspections during my buying process?

Building and pest pre-purchase inspections should be scheduled before making a formal offer or, if the property is going to auction, before the appointed day or during the cooling-off period granted after contracts are exchanged.

What other inspection services does Altez offer?

We conduct residential, commercial, investment, pre-purchase building and pest inspections to give you a comprehensive overview of the state of the property you’re building or buying.

How long do I need to wait to receive a building report from my property inspector?

Our comprehensive building inspection in Western Suburbs Melbourne takes less than a day to complete. In most cases, we can deliver complete building reports on the same day as your inspection. We will email your detailed building report within 24 hours after the scheduled inspection time.
